Ken Dryden of AllMusic called it a "stunning release" that is "Highly recommended!".[2] on All About Jazz Douglas Payne said "The captivating New Work (Celebration), though, is remarkable evidence of the intricate musical language Bob Brookmeyer has crafted as a composer. In the realm of his own inner logic - informed by Sauter and Stravinsky as much as George Russell and even Boulez - Brookmeyer has conceived something that is as warm and passionate as it is cerebral and sometimes startling".[4] The Penguin Guide to Jazz nominated the album as part of its "Core Collection" of recommended jazz recordings.[3][5]
